Burna Boy Denies Stabbing Anyone to DeathSaturday, December 07, 2013
In just a few days, Burna Boy has been linked with some scandals that could last him a life time.
While still smarting from the bashing he got for performing in his underpants during the last Felabration concert held recently, some other rumours emerged earlier in the week concerning the talented singer.
First, it was alleged Burna Boy was involved in some of gang activities in London which resulted in stabbing someone to death.
It was said that back in 2010 while the artiste was in UK, he was arrested by the London Police for allegedly being part of a gang who stabbed someone to death.
He was allegedly tried as a minor and sent to jail. After 11 months, he was reportedly released and given two months parole plus community service on the grounds of being of good behaviour.
Burna Boy, Saturday Beats learnt, was said to have disobeyed the authorities and travelled back to Nigeria where he signed a record deal with Aristokrat.
Those who claim to know said Burna Boy travelled back to the UK but was arrested at the airport and deported to Nigeria and is said to be currently barred from the UK for the next 15 years.
Then again, it was alleged the singer has left Aristokat probably because of a tweet the singer posted on his twitter account about a change coming, some concluded that he had problems with his label.
The tweet which he deleted shortly after it was posted read, “Change is about to happen. I know #BBG will stick with me no matter what. Watch out for future announcement. BBG.” BBG refers to his newly formed crew ‘Burna Boy Goons.’
However, reacting to the allegations, a lady from the singer’s camp who spoke on the condition of anonymity told Saturday Beats via a telephone chat that none of the stories was true. The lady said that they did not know where such news came from and it was both vexing and malicious.
She said, “There is no truth in the story. Burna Boy would talk to his fans when he is ready and the time is right. He never stabbed anybody and he was not convicted of any crime. How would somebody kill a person and be sent to jail for just 11 months? It should be at least 21 years in prison. It does not happen like that. Also they don’t deport such an offender instead the person serves the jail term there. The story is very vexing and malicious. There is no problem between him and his record at least none that I know of.”
